    I know this is such a random one as all houses vary in size, access, distance between jobs and of course the amount of glass. But I do wonder how many other window cleaners cover compared to me. My round is still very small but I find it hard to think I could do more than 10 in a day. Feel free to state minimum in a day and maximum in a day if you want. Many Thanks fellas.

    Minimum is 4 when I do some larger houses in the villages (£30-£55 a pop). Maximum is 12ish when the jobs vary between £6-20, although usually £12.

    Hoping to do a bit more in this summer but only been at it 2 years so constantly in the process of dropping bad payers and the "not today"-ers and canvassing better customers and also making it more compact.

    If I'm on my own I aim for 8 if they're large houses and up to 25 small 2 bed council houses (2 upstairs windows and 4 downstairs and a door). I usually work with someone and we can get up to 50 a day done if we both flat out

    Every day is different for me
    I have £200+ days with only 8 or 9 jobs and also really busy days for less cash
    It's hard to put a number of houses for my work as it's always different plus I am doing a lot more 1 off fascia and conservatory type jobs now so that affects how many i do daily

    I set out for a minimun of £200 per day some days £300.

    HOWEVER I am in a verey very densley populated city with hundreds of thousands of residences to target. I think perhaps not so easy in smaller villages or towns where more between job travelling time is required.

    i think you need to set yourself a daily target you are happy with based on how much you want to earn per day and tailor your work to suit once you reach your target any extra is a bonus
